April 10, 2014 – I was very sorry to hear of the death of Jim Flaherty, my longtime federal counterpart. He was a good man who worked hard for Canada and managed us through some very difficult times. He supported the aspirations of the NWT and supported us in getting the tools we needed to better run the NWT and gain control over our own future. I heard the news with a very heavy heart.

Mr. Speaker, last week I delivered the 2014-15 budget on behalf of the Government of the Northwest Territories. That budget was based on a fiscal strategy of living within our means while still identifying funds to better support the people of the Northwest Territories and make strategic investments in our economy. Part of our plan included investing in the future of the territory by allocating five percent of resource revenues coming through devolution to the Heritage Fund.

Mr. Speaker, many of our residents want to access more government services “on line”, rather than standing “in line”.

We are looking at ways to improve service delivery. In 2013 we approved the Service Innovation Strategy, a government-wide strategy to improve the delivery of programs and services by leveraging technology and by taking a more coordinated approach to service delivery.
